Holy crap, this axe is amazing. No seriously, it can split wood like there is no tomorrow. I don’t even know if you can call it an axe since it has mechanical parts and actions in the chopping head. I suppose that’s how they ended up with the name Chopper1. Either way, they nailed it. The two small levers in the head engage the two sides of the log being chopped and use your downward force to push them apart. This results in the two pieces absolutely launching off the block. You have to see it in action on their site to believe it, or just buy the thing for $90 and be amazed.
